Patricia McCallister was posting, asking teachers to come to Occupy LA with their cause about the firing and mistreatment of teachers. McCallister made a sign about teachers losing their jobs, and about money being stolen from teachers.
McCallister was approached by a reporter who said he wanted to ask her some questions. He had a camera crew guy with him to take the video. The interview was about 5 minutes long. After the interview McCallister forgot about it. The interview took place on Friday, October 14, 2011. On Monday morning, October 17, McCallister started getting calls on my cell phone with such comments as "we support you", and some not so nice comments. McCallister did not know WHAT was going on. She then went on the web and started looking around the web, and I found the Occupy LA video! I was shocked.
McCallister then found out that she had been fired from the Lausd School School District for what she said in the video interview from Occupy LA. This interview with Truth Hertz host Charles Giuliani explores what McCallister said and why she was fired.
